I have to return to my dealer tomorrow (for the second time) to have my bottom weatherstrip replaced. Anyone know if there is a design problem or could it be an installation problem? After the last installation I even placed a small amount of "Sil-Glyde" lubricating Compound on the rubber.
Anyone else having this problem? :flag

Weatherstrip Failure

The Weatherstrip has a soft foam and a harder rubber portion. Both failures have been the soft foam rubber somehow sticks out of the bottom portion of the endgate. :flag

weatherstrip stuff

I had to have mine replaced, but the replacement seal seems to be working. Apparently they don't all get sealed good/right from the factory.

I had to have mine replaced when I noticed the foam popping out. When the new one came in, I noticed that the foam was present but when installed you couldn't see it. I think the first one was installed backwards.
